Korean artist Young Sam Kim: „A World in the City

Kim was born in Busan, Korea in 1978. From an early age, Kim’s hearing became profoundly impaired.. At age three, he began drawing and painting lessons, using visual language as a form of communication to offset his auditory and vocal impairments.

After graduating from high school in Korea, he moved to the New York City to study photography at the School of Visual Arts, graduating in 2002. While working as a commercial photographer in the fashion and advertising industries after graduation, he continued refining his artistic vision and developing his own work. He began exhibiting his work in numerous venues in both the United States and in Korea. Exhibitions in the United States include shows at LaGuardia Community College Performing Art Center, New York, NY; Queens Museum of Art, Queens, NY; Korean exhibitions include the Won Gallery, Kwanju; Woobong Art Museum, Daegu; the Incheon Korea and China Art Culture Center, Incheon and the Milal Museum, Seoul among others.

Kim traveled to Uganda, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi to participate with the Korea International Organization to help hungry children worldwide in 2011 and 2010. In 2012, he was awarded 3rd place in the competition of ‘Exhibitions Without Walls for Photographers and Digital Artist’ in the U.S.
